So... The Purge turning into a real thing? Nah... Anarchy is not glittery.
Max.Wallace

Pro

I didn't see the movie but I did read a summary and to me it would be an interesting experiment. I would drive or walk around and wait for someone to attack which would expose them as evil that needs to be destroyed.

Con

Eh... I don't know. The idea of murder being legal is terrifying. I wouldn't even leave my house. \_( ._.)_/
Max.Wallace

Pro

I believe i confronting evil, not hiding from it. Although your approach is more the norm it allows the bad folks to do bad things while you are hiding. Safety first right?

Confronting an angry dude with a machine gun in his hand. No, thanks. ._.
Max.Wallace

Pro

I agree, that would be tough, but if you don't take him out then innocent people will die, and who knows they might find you hiding.

It's not my job to confront anybody. I'm just a turtle. .-.
Max.Wallace

Pro

I saw a turtle laying eggs in the middle of a logging road in Maine, a big old snapper turtle. I dug a hole next to the egg nest and planted a huge stick fortified with stones to protect the turtle and her brood. I have nothing against turtles, but everything against evil, and would be glory to confront and defeat such.

I like how neither Pro nor Con are actually talking about the implications of the Purge in society. They are both just talking "what would you do during the Purge?". I thought they'd talk about if allowing a period of lawless murderous chaos would actually create a more peaceful society.

The Purge didn't even make a good movie; how could it possibly be better in real life? ;-)

I mean, really, with that meaty premise (anything can happen for a day) and they shoot the entire thing inside one house? Booooring.
